Truly remarkable: Made from very old vines, this wine has a golden robe and persistent bouquet of almonds, linden trees and heather. A wine both rich and delicate, with a savory and powerful palate. Great as an aperitif or pair with shellfish, fish, white meats and cheeses.
Christian Lauverjat Sancerre Perle Blanche 2020
|Average Age of Vines|
92pts View from the Cellar– 2019 vintage
The Sancerre “Perle Blanche” from Kevin and Christian Lauverjat is the family’s Vieilles Vignes bottling, as this hails from a parcel of fifty-five year-old vines. It is fermented and raised in stainless steel.
The 2019 version is very deep and precise on the nose, offering up scents of lime, green apple, gorgeous limestone minerality, citrus peel, gentle grassiness and a topnote of white flowers.
On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and still fairly tightly-knit, with a rock solid core, excellent mineral drive and lovely cut and grip on the long and complex finish… an outstanding bottle of Sancerre. 2020-2030.
